  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    In my current Glen Els test series (Jul, Amarone, Marsala, French Connection) the most convincing, whereby there was not a bad one.
    • Nose
      Direct sherry, dark chocolate, vanilla, fresh notes of citrus fruits, you notice the alcohol a little when Verriechen, my sulfur radar strikes very gently, after the first time drinking this false note has disappeared.
    • Taste
      sweet, lots of chocolate, some oak, but massive chocolate !, now fruity, the alcohol is surprisingly restrained, caramel is also still in it
    • Finish
      a balance of chocolate keeps on the palate and lingers together with a grapey fruit note, pleasant and long-lasting

  2. Egge scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Raspberries and fine cherries. An alcoholic touch is there and does not really disappear. Behind hides oak.
    • Taste
      Very soft, the port is pleasant to the touch. The oak is very soft.
    • Finish
      Rather short than long, a little caramel, the sweetness sounds.

  3. Gloin scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The whisky is quite sweet, but not as syrupy sweet as some other Glen Els, I have already tried. This reminds him more of a scotch than other Glen Els. Blind, I would never have recognized him as a non-Scot. Smell and taste are pleasing without proper climax. Delicious. Hard to believe that the whisky is only three years old.
    • Nose
      Sweet sherry, bread, raspberries, cherries, sultanas, pine needles, very lightly alcoholic, but not so noticeable oak
    • Taste
      Very creamy body, easy onset, then a sweet burning on the tongue, ruby ​​port, sweet, fruity, delicate astringent, some oak spicy, but hardly bitterness, fruit gum from my childhood
    • Finish
      Sweet oak, now with a bit more bitterness, some burned sugar, nutmeg

  6. FC Sunderland scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      oak, reminds me a bit of Bourbon, vanilla, honey and toffee
    • Taste
      very sweet, fruity with caramel
    • Finish
      not very long but enjoyable, spicy notes but sweet on the other hand. Very smooth

  7. megabreit scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Overall, very delicious, but unfortunately with a sweet and sticky note on the nose
    • Nose
      first very sweet and sticky, then some warm moist wood and sultanas
    • Taste
      powerful start with sulfurized sultanas and a lot of fruity sweetness, sherry, sherry, scherry, dark chocolate
    • Finish
      medium long with a lot of dry pomace note behind the sweet fruit

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    There's some chauvinism from the Germans involved in the average score of almost 91 in my opinion, but that doesn't mean that this isn't a really nice whisky. 88/89.
    • Nose
      Candied cherry, raspberry, lime like in 7Up, barley, caramel and brazil nuts. I found it quite fresh when I tasted this one after the Ember and the Four Seasons 2014.
    • Taste
      Caramel, raisin, cherry, hazelnut and a little fried banana.
    • Finish
      Raisin, cherry, caramel, hazelnut and milk chocolate.
